On Saturday night (June 20) - the Preservation Hall in New Orleans hosted a massive live streamed fundraising show.  The music institution is so important to so many people- they had no problem getting participants ... the 4 hour show includes live and archived performances from Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Elvis Costello, Irma Thomas, Dave Matthews, Beck, Jon Batiste, Jim James, Arcade Fire, PJ Morton, Nathaniel Rateliff and more


The show got its name from the 'Midnight Preserves' series the Preservation Hall hosts each year when prominent artists in town for Jazzfest perform at the small venue in the heart of the French Quarter alongside the Preservation Hall Collective for late night concerts.
